Shelter's 2012 Flag Week was held during the week of the 16th to 20th July. Throughout the week street and supermarket collections were organised around the island and on Friday evening the traditional 'pub run' collection went ahead as usual .
A total of £4,535 was raised during the week and The Shelter Trust would like to thank all those who help filled our collection buckets. A big thanks also to the businesses who allow us to collect on their premises and to those volunteers who turn out every year to make the event such a success.

The Street collectors were out in force in and around King Street throughout the week. Locals and visitors alike came across to ask what it was all about and to donate their spare change or more. A lot of genuine support was evident as many people stopped by to enquire about Shelter's work and to voice their support for the 'good work' done.
The 'pub run' saw collectors visit many of the pubs in St. Helier, St. Aubin and at Red Houses on the Friday evening. Collectors mingled with the customers without lingering too long!!!
The collectors report that they were well received and that the punters were in a generous mood.
